Paris, France - Mar­seille kept pace with French League leader Paris Saint-Ger­main (PSG) on Sun­day af­ter com­ing from be­hind to beat Bordeaux 3-1 and rack up a sixth straight win that keeps it five points be­hind the cham­pion.

Jor­dan Amavi, Mor­gan San­son and Ne­manja Radon­jic hit the de­ci­sive goals in front of a rau­cous crowd of around 52,000 as An­dre Vil­las-Boas' side main­tained a hot streak that has seen them rise to sec­ond in the French top flight.

"At the break the coach told us to do more, to get the Velo­drome right be­hind us," said San­son, whose 60th-minute strike put Mar­seille ahead af­ter it had fallen be­hind to Yacine Adli's su­perb first-half opener.

With three teams qual­i­fy­ing for Europe's Cham­pi­ons League, Mar­seille is seven points ahead of fourth-placed Rennes and
